Destination: Germany: Berlin
This French-German bistro has been open in some capacity since the mid-1800s. A glam crowd sips Champagne and nibbles on the restaurant’s famous Wiener schnitzel among a backdrop of marble columns and Art Nouveau mosaics that recalls the roaring twenties.
Lutter & Wegner
Elegant and formal, Lutter & Wegner is styled like a grand 19th-century café and makes a mean Wiener schnitzel. There are several locations, but you should visit the original at the Gendarmenmarkt in Mitte.
One of the city’s heyday bistros, the Paris Bar remains popular with an art crowd thanks to its location in Charlottenburg that is close to many of the city’s most-upscale galleries. It’s mobbed during periods when there are art happenings or the film festival, and though the food is fine (standard French fare), you come as much for the scene and history as for the steak-frites.
